Track Name: To Prosper
The world is in our hands
Don't take life's lessons for granted
Step up and be a
man like they need you to be
respect is earned not given
live by the golden rule
Track Name: Amongst Thieves
Lift your head boy
you've lied, you're better than this
To be scared of what they think
You’re just another fake

You can feel it in your fingers
it rests within your gut
dishonesty
you've been here before
you've seen her face
of disappointment

Overcome your weakness, defeat demons
slay nightmares and create the dream
don't lose yourself this time
Don’t ever lose yourself
You’ve been stuck in position of regaining vision
This is harder on yourself and everyone around you

Take three deep breaths my friend
And know that things get easier, easier with time
(just strive to make the change from the gutless man you've been)
I can't change who I've been
But I can change who I will be
This person in the mirror is the man that you will see
reclaim my life, receiving light

You can feel it in your fingers
It rests within your gut
dishonesty
you've been here before
you've seen her face
of disappointment

You're not another fake
Look at yourself; be true to your face
Track Name: The Enforcer
Is this what you call love
how could you?

My world is crashing down
I watch as it's crumbling
you're breaking down my walls
and I don't mind
all the things you put me through
you put me through

We've lost our way
and even though we're far from home we're here to stay
And I’ve lost all hope in these foolish dreams
I just need someone to save me

And now we're left here, wondering
(Now we're left here wondering)
I just need someone to save me
And I'm taking back what's always been mine

I'm not here to fulfill your dreams
I'm taking back my life
You love what you hate
You’ve become the enforcer

And I’m tired of this sight
And I’m tired of the lies

Is this what you call love?

And now we're left here, wondering
(Now we're left here wondering)
I just need someone to save me
And I'm taking back what's always been mine
And now we're left here, wondering

I'm breaking free

This is my hell
Fall away, forget what was your shell
Forget what was your shell
Track Name: Solace
Is there a better way to understand?
Where I come from
And where I need to be
There must be something
There’s got to be more
If life’s so short
What’s worth fighting for?

Show me, now show me
Show me there is a better way
Show me how to find my way
No one learns from their mistakes

Why do we do the things we do?
Is it to fill a void, that empty space?
To make us feel alive?

Why am I alive?
What’s the path for me?

These are the questions we ask ourselves
And the answers lie within our hearts
And if you pursue the things you love
The only limit is the sky above

Make this existence yours
Live your life with no regrets
Make this existence yours

Is there a better way to understand?
Where I come from
And where I need to be
There must be something
There’s got to be more
If life’s so short
What’s worth fighting for?

Show me, now show me
Show me there is a better way
Show me how to find my way
No one learns from their mistakes

Take your chance
Take your chance and save yourself
This is a chance to change yourself
Make this existence yours
Track Name: Ohio Blue Tip
Sometimes I feel like the words
Come pouring out my mouth
With no sense of direction
Lacks common sense, fueled by hate
Because I have hate for myself

I've been searching for answers
With no results

If you were anything like me
You would help me carry on
And if you know anything at all
I will take this all from you

Just keep reaching, keep reaching
For the strength, to move forward
Just keep reaching, keep reaching
For the strength, to move forward

The longer we hold our breath
Is then longer that we have to regret

We've gone too far to lose it all
We've gone too far to lose it
There's a fine line, between you and I
Make no mistake

Make no mistakes
Make no mistakes

The longer we hold our breath
Is the longer that we have to regret
Longer that we have to regret

Please don't leave me here alone
(Please don't leave me here alone)
Please don't leave me here alone
Track Name: Transcend
Separated from what’s wrong and right
Thoughts of them never crossed my mind
My vice laid before me, it hurts
To think I did this

We all have our vices
I’m here to destroy mine
This is self-improvement
This is our medication

I saw it in my sleep
All the things that I’ve done
Rearranged and done to me
I deserve all of this and more
Bring me to that dark place you’ve experienced before

Reach out to me
Tell me this is real, tell me this is real
I can’t believe
Reach out to me
This is all surreal, this is all surreal
Your hate towards me

I can’t believe I’m dead
Murdered inside of you
A new leaf is turned
I transcend

No longer concerned with anything or anyone but you
I’m numb from the things I’ve done
I’m numb from the things I’ve done

No longer concerned with anything or anyone but you
I’m numb from the things I’ve done
I’m done

We all have our vices
I’m here to destroy mine
This is self-improvement
This is our medication

Reach out to me
Tell me this is real, tell me this is real
I can’t believe
Reach out to me
This is all surreal, this is all surreal
Your hate towards me
Track Name: Bonneville
(I won't)
I won't lie
This is what we came here for, we came here for
I won't lie
This is what we came here for, we came here for

If you believe in this now
Then I can't expect you to understand
You and I can run away and always be the same
(Same the way we use to be)

Let’s take it easy now
Because I can't hold back
I can't hold back

Run away to the hills, pretend it’s okay
Wake up, wake up, this is a dream

Reality sets in
Reality sets in (its calling out)
And I still let you down

If you believe in this now
Then I can't expect you to understand
You and I can run away and always be the same
(Same the way we use to be)

Let’s take it easy now
Because I can't hold back
I can't hold back
And it's how the story goes
Because you're not mine anymore

You’re not mine
Can’t hold back

If you believe in this now
Then I can't expect you to understand
You and I can run away and always be the same
(Same the way we use to be)
Track Name: Lightbringer
Nothing is impossible
To a willing heart with nothing to lose
If nothing is impossible
Then there’s nothing that can come between
Me and my dreams

I’m not a perfect man
But I can help you lead the way
Together we are one
Don’t get caught up in the fray

It’s never too late to be alive

We sing songs of hope
For the hopeless (we sing songs of hope)
We sing songs of hope
For the hopeless (pour this hope in you)

Become what you perceive
Pursue what you believe
They’ll try to stomp and drag you down
Rise above, persevere

Rise above the hate and persevere

Let the light shine on this world
Open your eyes you are not useless
Let the light shine on this world
Open your eyes you are not useless

In the face of defeat
We laugh and turn our backs

We sing songs of hope
For the hopeless (we sing songs of hope)
We sing songs of hope
For the hopeless (pour this hope in you)

Choose a path it yours to lead
Don’t lose sight of your dreams
Nothing’s impossible to a willing heart
Track Name: And Drown
I'm left here treading water
Come witness my defeat
I kick my feet in hopes of surface
But ocean I will be

Oh so clear it was
The intent of your endeavors
Betrayed by peers and left to float
Adrift amongst the others

There’s no reason to look back
When there’s so much to look forward to
Well I’ve found my brothers
They’re right here next to me
I’ve found my brothers
They’re what you could never be

Your purpose, is no less than anyone’s
Those who think that they’re above you
Are the plague of this earth

Stay true to who you are
Don’t succumb to their words
Stay true to who you are
Don’t succumb to your wounds

Sometimes it’s all you can do
To just keep from drowning
Sometimes it’s all you can do
To just keep from drowning


I’ll take that scepter that you call your own
I’ll take that scepter and bury it with your throne

Sometimes it’s all you can do
To just keep from drowning

Wear your false crowns
And drown
Drown
Wear your false crowns and drown

Receiving life is a form of a purpose
Receiving life, behold our masterpiece
Track Name: Team Supreme
This is where we both went wrong
With these years that gone by
We failed but we tried
To make our name

I will try to make it right
Believe me I’ll try one last time
With these years that gone by
We failed but we tried
To make our name

It’s up to you
Reality shaped by distant dreams
Take needed leaps
Sacrifice all basic needs

We need to do this for ourselves

We haven’t fought this hard to be left right now
Need to do this for ourselves
We haven’t fought this hard to be left right now
Need to do this for ourselves

Fight for what you believe
And fight for you and me

We built this from the ground
Try and stop us
Try and stop us now

We haven’t fought this hard to be left right now
We fight for what these dreams could become
We haven’t fought this hard to be left right now
We fight for our dreams

We built this from the ground
Try and stop us
Try and stop us

We haven’t fought this hard to be left right now
We fight for what these dreams could become

The time here is ours
The time here is ours
It’s ours, it’s ours

Need to do this for ourselves
